Assault of the Sasquatch

In Assault of the Sasquatch (2009), poachers with questionable hygiene and chew tobacco stained teeth snare the iconic fuzzball in one of their illegal traps meant for gummi bears and chocolate raccoons.

Getting Sas inside a carrier truck and prepped to sell to a big game hunter, the head poacher is caught red-footed and hauled off to jail and the truck driven back to the small town, where Sasquatch pounds his way out and sticks around for some payback.

Assault of the SasquatchThe police station, holding a violent criminal that ties back into the game warden’s past, becomes a refuge while Sasquatch circles and attacks over and over. (He was probably in the military before becoming a woodland tourist attraction.)

If that wasn’t enough to set the eyeballs a’rollin’, a former druggie chick/stripper, now working as an office assistant for the cop that got her off the streets, does some kung-fu street boxing with the harried beast, and actually gets in a few solid punches. Then again, this Sasquatch, with dreads and a human tooth necklace (at least that what it looked like to me), didn’t look too tough.

I never thought I’d say this about a Bigfoot movie, but the sub-plot with the cop and the violent criminal was more interesting than the monster. I need to get my priorities straightened out.

Feral Werewolf

Does a werewolf crap in the woods? And if it did, would there be anyone to step in it? There are entire college courses given over to philosophical quandaries such as this. Still in school or not, it makes one think.

Cub

So think about this: what if a cub scout troop goes into the woods, gets lost, and fall prey to a Kai, a local legend werewolf thought to crap all over the same forest they’re wandering around in?

Cub

That’s the premise of Cub, a heavily-lauded indie Dutch horror movie that made the film circuit rounds in 2014 and is ready for release in the UK on June 15, 2015 and here in the States on August 22, 2015. But Cub is nowhere near being a werewolf movie, the topic of which was just the local spiel designed to scare the crap outta kids and to keep them tourist Euros rolling in. Here’s the real deal…

Cub

“Sam, a young imaginative twelve-year-old boy heads off to camp with his Cub Scouts pack and leaders. Once they enter the woods, Sam quickly feels something is not quite right. He soon stumbles upon a mysterious tree house and meets a shifty, masked feral-looking child.”

Cub

“When Sam tries to warn his leaders, they ignore him. As Sam gets more and more isolated from the other scouts, he becomes convinced a terrible fate awaits them: the Feral Child, it turns out, is the helper of the Poacher, an evil psychopath, who has riddled the forest with ingenious traps and is intent on slaughtering the scouts one by one.”

I bet anything one of the traps is a pile of werewolf doo doo that everybody steps in and tracks all over the forest. Talk about evil…
